Every Friday Night between September and June we alternate between two programs:
What is Catalyst?
Catalyst is defined as, "a person or event that quickly causes change or action.” Catalyst is about putting your faith into action through discipleship with a strong emphasis on engaging the scriptures. During the evening we come together for worship before splitting into groups called Tribes (JR Girls, JR Guys, SR Girls, SR Guys) where you can have some fun with your Tribe Leader and discuss a passage of scripture. It’s a mixture of real-life faith and life-shaping relationships.
What is Outlet?
Outlet is a place where Junior and Senior Highs can grow in their relationships with God and each other. Outlet is focused on building Christ-like community through games, activities, and outings. During Outlet we could be playing dodgeball or board games, watching a movie, staying up all night playing games, or checking out the Edmonton Corn Maze, Launchpad, or Laser Quest.
We have the following programs during the summer:
What is Plot?
Plot, like Outlet, is focused on building Christ-like community in a casual atmosphere. Plot stands for "parking lot" and is hosted in Bethel's parking lot on Tuesday during July and August. We play various games, eat some snacks, and enjoy the warm weather while we've got it.
Active and Arts Themed Camps will run for one week each during the month of July. This is an opportunity for youth entering grades 6-12 in our church and community to learn various skills in staying active or creating art, while also building friendships and exploring faith.
During the year we also have a Fall and Spring Retreat, a Missions Trip to Mexico (for students Grades 9 to 12), and various other activities. Check out our calendar under "Upcoming" or contact Melanie (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
